lot. that is how the law was set up in san francisco we have about 50 stores that qualify as supermarkets for convenience sake, we, the state, set up a system where only about 30 of those were recycling centers back in 1986. over time, through real estate consolidation, the closing of supermarkets or the reduction of parking lots that we have seen, those 30 that we used to have in 1990 are down to about 20 now. at the same time, the number of containers that we get money back for is much greater. there is now water bottles, juice boxes, a lot of things that didn't used to be in the law that are now in the law. so there is a tremendous amount of volume going through this and amounts to about $17 million a year in redemption value that goes back to the consumer in san francisco alone. of that $17 million, about $12 goes to recyclers through recycling centers and $6 of it goes to the curbside program. so i hope i'm not going too fast here, but if there are any questions, please stop me. so the problem at the moment is that there are fewer recycling centers than there used to

. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is charley goss and i work with the san francisco apartment association in government and community affairs. i am here to speak on behalf of the legislation and thank you to supervisor mar for your sponsorship. we have been trying to address tobacco smoke in apartments for several years now and we've been trying to address it in a way that wouldn't spur evictions for tenants and wouldn't spur lawsuits for land lords. the best way to go about that legislation seemed to be a disclosure policy. the disclosure policy doesn't change any current lease agreements, it changes no current smoking policies but it's a disclosure of those policies. it's based on the right to know that if someone is going to move into an apartment they have the right to know if smoke will come into their apartment. it's not often that the landlord community and the tenant community gets to work together. in this circumstance i can say that we have a broad base of support. it's a commonsense piece of legislation. the landlord community is behind it, the tenant communi
